Couldn't find the hard drive or the DVD drive? If it's the hard drive then the crash was due to a hard drive failure and the hard drive will have to be replaced. If it's the DVD drive, you will need to get a floppy for it and flash the bios in order for the machine to recognize the DVD drive again.

Emachine computer. hard drive crashed


If the hard drive on your computer crashed what will be your next step here is to reinstall back to your computer including the operating system, but you can also try doing a system recovery if you have a recovery disc and run it and there you will see a option to do a recovery on your system. But if you also have a recovery disc for it you can also use that in recovering the computer.

Error : 10-FC12-0002 comes up during Toshiba system rocovery what does it mean and how do i fix it?


I download this from the Toshiba support site:

Possible causes of these error conditions are listed at right. Use this list as a troubleshooting guide -- not as an absolute list of causes, as there may be others.
"An error has occurred. ERROR :10-FC10-1710" -- may be caused by a faulty hard drive.
"An error has occurred. ERROR :10-FC12-0241" -- may be caused by a faulty hard drive or defective memory.
"An error has occurred. ERROR :10-FC12-045D / 10-FC11-045D" -- may be caused by a faulty hard drive. *****
"An error has occurred. ERROR :10-FC06-0002" -- may be caused by damaged recovery media or faulty hard drive.
"An error has occurred. ERROR :10-FC12-0970" -- may be caused by defective memory.
*for this error 10-FC12-045D u nid to call 1-800-457-7777 toshiba advance technical support they will send it to depot or they will recommend ASP (Authorized Service Partner)

I suppose your recovery disks could be bad. You can get another set from Toshiba. I'm also concerned about the health of the hard drive. Did you need to run recovery because the system crashed, because it may not have been an operating sysem crash but rather a hard drive crash. Have the harddrive or whole laptop checked by a reoutable repair person or check my website: www.micromendllc.com

System crashes completely. just freezes and never recovers. for some odd reason, when i try to run the windows repair, it crashes as well giving me the blue screen of death. i have three other hard drives:...


You are probably correct in thinking it a motherboard problem, its sounds like the disk controller on the motherboard id faulty.
There are a huge range of motherboards to choose from.
The mounting holes on the motherboard will match the desktop mounting plate, these are standard configurations.
Stick with the well known brands and with the functions that suit your requirements.
My choice of brands are Gigabyte, Intel, MSI.
If you are into gaming and video editing etc. go for a motherboard without a built-in graphics card and purchase a separate high end graphics card.

My comp. was crashing at defferant time & message fault NTLDR


Use the commands
FIXBOOT and
FIXMBR in the
"Repair mode" of Windows XP installation or XP Recovery Console
for vista Recovery Environment or if you have recovery disk/disc you can use it

==============================

That error indicates a partition problem, you need to full format your harddisk and removing all partion and do a fresh install. Regarding your Win XP CD, just configure the BIOS to first BOOT to your CDROM

Hope this work for you ^_^

Tried to install update and computer crashed


A few ways to try and eliminate.
Upon startup F8 for safe mode: Last Know Configuraton

Hit F8 for safe mode. Go into accessories>system tools>system restore
Doesn't work then: need Windows CD setup. Let it run and hit R for Recovery Console. At the DOS prompt type FIXMBR or FIXBOOT.

I bet your hard drive crashed on you. You might have to buy yourself a new hard drive and replace your old one with it. Then format it and install a fresh copy of your Operating System on it. Your error condes here indicate to me that you either got a blue screen or similar. Blue Screens and/or the code that you stated here are usually caused by a software issue, and are rarely hardware issues. But in this case, you may have gotten something bad on your computer, such as a virus or serious spyware, that wiped out your Operating System And caused your hard drive to crash/become corrupt. As I mentioned, try replacing your hard drive. Hope this helps.

My IBM Think Pad T30 showin working on AC with out powering..


If it's not finding the operating system, and you'va ran the recovery cd, then the problem is going to be that the hard drive has failed and will need replaced. In order to double check and make sure it's the hard drive, run the recovery or operating system disc, and reformat the hard drive. If the hard drive will not format, then it's bad.

Windows crash


These are operating system errors. Start by doing a check disc from the bios or set up. The check disc is a hard drive test, if anything fails then you have a hard drive crash and you will need to replace the hard drive. If it passes, then you will need to run a repair on the operating system using your recovery or operating system disc. If you have any hang ups or issues during or after the repair then you will need to completely reload a fresh copy of the operating system.
